COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio man who raised $55,000 in a joking crowdfunding appeal to pay for his first attempt at making potato salad threw a huge public party Saturday that promised "peace, love and potato salad."
PotatoStock 2014 was held in downtown Columbus and featured bands, food trucks, beer vendors and, yes, plenty of potato salad. With more than 3,000 pounds of potatoes, the charity-minded party was open to people of all ages.

Here's a longer version below that shows the 911 call overlayed with the surveillance. This is graphic and it's disturbing just how much of a not at all threat this kid was or even appeared to be, just leaning on something he picked up in an aisle, talking on his phone, lied about by some drama-seeking 911 caller, then shot dead by police.
Oklahoma Rep. John Bennett overstepped his duties and called for the eradication of Islam and its adherents. His justification was that Islam is a cancer which must be cut out. He also said that Americans should be very wary of Muslims... specially Christian Americans.
CAIR- Oklahoma demanded that Representative John Bennett apologize for grouping all Muslims into terrorists.. but the Representative refused and stood by his statement. CAIR-OK will be holding a press conference today at 1 PM to ask for protection for the Muslim community in OK.
When a police shooting at a Walmart in Beavercreek, Ohio, took the life of 22-year-old John Crawford III on August 5, the cops were responding to a 911 call from another shopper who said that Crawford was pointing an AR-15 rifle at customers in the aisles of the big box store.
In the call, 24-year-old Ronald Ritchie described a black man walking around the store with the weapon, telling the 911 operator, “He’s, like, pointing it at people.”
How can they endorse a RINO that has the National Guard of Ohio train against 2nd amendment enthusiasts!??
I am no longer supporting them...
At a gun buyback held last Saturday in Cleveland that purchased nearly 400 firearms, a local gun group was able to get to the best hundred first.
The group, Ohio Carry, set up near the buyback organized by the Cleveland Police and offered cash for guns. This was a stark contrast to the gift certificates and tickets to minor league hockey games up for grabs at the police event. The results were that Ohio Carry made off with what it contends was the lion’s share of collectable firearms, while CPD left with 270 mostly low-value ‘junk’ guns.
Anybody feel like buying guns with me on the cheap? I would like to organize a group of like-minded patriots who wouldn't mind
A. Buying guns at a competitive price ($100 for pistols, $200 for rifles and shotguns)
B. Preventing tax-payer money from being used to disarm citizens
All we need is a sign and table to declare out intent and the proper forms to transfer firearms between private parties.
If anyone is not from Cleveland, feel free to add your experiences if you have any of gun buybacks, down below.
Thank you Patriots!
Beavercreek, Ohio – The killing of John Crawford III by police inside Wal-Mart differs from other recent police killings in one substantial manner. It isn’t that the victim was unarmed, carrying only a bb gun obtained from the store’s shelves. It isn’t that Crawford was on the phone when the officers approached him. It is different because even if Crawford had been carrying a rifle in the store, the officers that killed him did not even have cause to detain him, much less shoot him.
This is a good articulation of how to get along with people who are destroying the world. For most here, it'll be "my dad is a statist", but the wisdom here transcends the current flavors of politics around us.
Here's the update:

Just want to make a public thank you to Cory Booker. This is a big deal for me because historically the left has made Rand out to be wicked...
Rand made a real ally in this media appearance. It will be interesting how this plays out.
Regardless it was excellent strategy from both camps. It isn't like Booker is offering a ghetto pass. Booker is being absolutely honest in his approach too. That is why he defended Paul.
Intellectual honesty is a very big deal.
Am I crazy or did the popular posts and active forum topics flip??
He must be joining facebook and OKCupid!! Its a conspiracy!!!

I am organizing a fundraiser and birthday party for a couple of my nephews. My youngest nephew is a bad ass little breakdancer and my oldest nephew is an honorable young man that is turning 18.
My youngest came to me and told me he wanted to take his crew to Chicago to compete against the big kids at Battle of the Dojos. My youngest nephew is only 10 and is an incredible little bboy. My oldest nephew is the oldest child in the family and he is turning 18. He is an honorable young man with plans to attend OU next year.
I am very proud of the boys in my family.
